Have I got this about right?
1. You've never been to the north.
2. You're top choices are/include FP and Syracuse.
3. You are going to turn into an icicle. Only Minnesota and the Dakotas get as cold as NH, and Syracuse is no better.
4. You'll see how much prettier (nature/scenery) the north is.
5. You'll feel embarassed for worrying about sweet tea, though you won't miss it once you learned to drink hot cocoa/coffee/tea (those are three different items).
Almost. I have been to the North, but never lived there. My top choice is Pierce. I think someone else is considering Syracuse. I don't doubt it's pretty, I'm just not sure I'll be able to tell with all of the snow piled on top of everything.
I don't like sweet tea. Iced tea with no sugar or lemon, yes. I can make my own...it's no big deal. Even an ignorant Southerner such as myself has experienced coffee, cocoa, and tea. Further I realize they are indeed separate beverages. Perhaps the biggest adaptation to the North will be learning to deal with the ever-condescending attitudes...
Silly ass! I was summarizing the OP's concerns. Way to recognize the thread! (Doing my best to live up to the expectations of condescension. By the way, NH isn't condescending in my experience; it is suspicious, though.)
